Debugging Product & Process

We offer a broad range of value-add services  as you will see on this site. Perhaps the greatest value add though that we offer is that of pain relief for your product failure headaches and manufacture ‘support’ service.

Once your product is released to manufacturing, it’s performance and reliability become the basis for your customers opinion of both the product and your company. While ideally we would prefer if customers used our Problem Prevention System by working with us from ‘day 1’, customers often come to us ‘after the event’. They suffer with bad field performance and need ‘fixes’.
Using our Highly Focussed Manufacturing Management approach, we identify and minimise to the greatest extent possible early and/or unacceptably high levels of field failure rates. We manage everything from vendor selection, component approval/ selection/deselection (in partnership with you to the extent you desire) through to fulfilment.
Working in partnership with you we establish a Field Failure Tracking System for your product. We have a Test, Debug and Repair Centre at our site in Shannon to quickly address and replace warranty failures with a corresponding Root Cause Failure Analysis and a program of Continuous Improvement to implement preventive actions within the manufacturing process.
As part of our Continuous Improvement Process, we have a Lessons Learned Process which helps collect the key information so that you learn from each product you develop, thereby increasing the reliability of each successive product.
This service can be used as a consultancy service and we can facilitate transfer of manufacturing back to your current manufacturer after problem fixes are designed and implemented. The only proviso is that we must be able to work on and manufacture your product in our process/ at our site in Shannon, in order to provide a comprehensive set of manufacturing solutions to address your product failure issues.

Component Preparation Services

CW Applied Technology also offers value added component services. Our Value added services include: lead tinning, moisture bake-out, dry packaging, tape and reel packaging, tape splicing, lead forming and component prepping. All our services are performed to applicable industry standards and/or our customer specifications. As with all our manufacturing services, all our Added Value Services adhere to static sensitive standards and our static compliance control program.

Kitted Products Assembly

Not all customers require Full Turnkey or Black-Box manufacturing. Many customers indeed prefer to provide kits of material for PCB and/or mechanical assembly and seek only labour input from CW Applied Technology. This is totally fine with us as we seek to partner with our clients regardless and while Full Turnkey Service is available from CW Applied Technology so are all and any of the steps contained within as a stand-alone service if our client prefers. Team and partnership are more than words to us.
